Pag-IBIG Lowest Rates 5.5 % | News And Updates

Pag-IBig Lowest Rate 5.5% 

For the first year of the Pag-IBIG home loan term of up to P6 Million, eligible borrowers can now opt for the 5.5% per annum interest rate – the lowest rate the country’s biggest home loan provider has ever offered in their End-User Financing Program.

Pag-IBIG Fund has cut its rates in its home loan programs in the last five years and this is the fifth time it has made a major move. More so, aside from the new financial program, it also offers the Affordable Housing Program for minimum wage earners to encourage them to buy a home instead of spending or rent.

Filipinos gained another reason to buy a decent shelter thru the help of Pag-IBIG. Now that home loans under the regular program are even made more affordable, Pag-IBIG hopes to finance over 76,000 homes for 2016.

Here’s a copy of Pag-IBIG’s official Press Release:

Pag-IBIG offers its lowest home loan rate of 5.5% 

At only 5.5% per annum, Pag-IBIG home loans under the regular program are now even more affordable, the Pag-IBIG Fund chief recently announced.

“Starting July 1, eligible borrowers can opt for 5.5% per annum interest rate for the first year of the loan term for housing loans up to P6 Million. This is the lowest rate we have ever offered in our End-User Financing Program,” said Pag-IBIG President and CEO Atty. Darlene Marie B. Berberabe.

When the new rates take effect on July 1, Pag-IBIG Fund’s End-User Financing Program will come with rates of 5.500% for a 1-year fixed-pricing period, 6.500% for 3 years, 7.270% for 5 years, 8.035% for 10 years, 8.585% for 15 years, 8.800% for 20 years, 9.050% for 25 years, and 10.000% under a 30-year fixed-pricing period.

 The new 1-year fixed-rate can be availed by new home loan borrowers. To avail of the lowest rate of 5.5% per annum, borrowers must meet the following criteria: the monthly amortization should not exceed 30% of the borrower's gross monthly income; and the ratio of the loan amount to the appraised value of the collateral shall not exceed 75%.

“We hope to entice our members who are eyeing home packages that are priced more than socialized housing. To give our members an idea of how affordable our housing loan package is, the monthly amortization for a P2 Million home loan will be P11,355.78 at 5.5% and P12,641.36 at 6.5%. The computed amortization consists of the principal and interest,” said Atty. Berberabe. 

This is the fifth time that Pag-IBIG Fund has cut its rates in its home loan programs in the last 5 years. “We have made this possible by improving our fundamentals, that is, by improving underwriting as well as collection. We are focused to further enhancing our housing program to pursue our vision of providing decent shelter for our Filipino workers,” Atty. Berberabe shared.

We also offer our Affordable Housing Program, where minimum-wage earners can borrow up to P450,000 for only 4.5% per annum. The rate is good for the first 10 years of the loan term which term can go up to 30 years. This is exclusively for minimum wage earners to help them buy a home for the price of renting one. Now our kasambahays and drivers can actually own homes for monthly amortization of P2,280.08, which include the principal and interest,” Atty. Berberabe said.

In 2015, Pag-IBIG Fund approved P55.76 Billion in home loans to finance the construction or the acquisition of 72,270 homes. For 2016, the agency targets to approve more than P60 Billion in home loans, to finance over 76,000 homes.
